The Pittsburgh Steelers football play called immaculate reception was the result of many small decisions by many players that worked perfectly. The result of those decisions were a total game changer. Prior to that the Steelers had been a fairly mediocre team. But after that, they became arguably the greatest football franchise in history!
Do you have some small decisions you need to make, small changes that are needed in your life that could totally change your life?!
Like the decision to follow the teachings of Jesus. My life is so much better when I am following Jesus'.
What defines who you really are? We are more than what we do. We are human beings, not human doings!
Check out the following from the Bible:
“but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him. But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.””
Do you define yourself by what you do or by what Jesus has done for you?!
What happens when we pour ourselves into what we do or who we love and then what we do ends or who we love dies?
Our identity must be tied up in loving God, loving others, and being in the business of transforming lives - being more Christ!
